Hello guys, I just recently got back to this hobby so I can enjoy the awesome carnivorous plants I once enjoyed before. However, I don't know how to take care of an Utricularia alpina x endresii. Can you give me tips and your experiences? Thank you very much; help is appreciated:)
I want to get u. Alpina u. Quelchii u. Jitka and u. Nudlinger flair. I want to know what soils you use. I have access to a very limited range of soils unfortunately these are peat, washed river sand, fine orchid bark and vermiculite. There is perlite too but its almost powder fine and...
Before I go the commercial route, just thought I'd check if anyone has enough for me to start an outside summer culture (prefer smaller species). They would seem to be a more benign alternative than the mosquito larvae I'm currently using.
As for possible trade material, this would obviously...
I'm looking for any mature divisions of Heliamphora that are not heterodoxa x minor, these are not for me but would prefer ones different from the ones on my grow list in case I do want to get a division back from them later (they would be going to a botanical garden)
my grow list:
Chunk of Utricularia alpina - species with the reputation as being the easiest from section Orchidioides. For those unfamiliar with this species, here's a flower pic:
Postage should be less than $10.
This offer is open to everyone (with USA mailing address) but please do your own research so...
Repotted about half my collection yesterday and weeded out a few things. Gonna do this WYSIWYG style:
The pot of 5 or so immature D. capensis 'typical' in the center of the photo. (It was a bit hard to get the photo). I'd like to trade off all of them.
All grown as windowsill plants, outside in the summer.
-Dionaea: two different plants, both no ID. One huge green, one small with red in the traps, but the color is gone now.
Alata (unknown variety)
Bicalcarata sri aman
Mirabilis Au Cape York
Gracilis nigropurpurea (male)
Veitchii Mt Murudu sarawak
Clones I don't have!
Eden Black (eb x eb)
Brewer giant green
Triffid Albany black
I know they are simple, but I'd love to add some VFTs to my collection. They are what got me started in this hobby in the first place. I'm just getting started, so all I have to trade are U. alpina and U. nephrophylla. Any takers? I'd love some petite dragons, B52, etc. if anyone has some spare...
The lowland Nepenthes house needs variety, so I'm seeking any Genlisea besides hispidula. Can offer juvenile H. minor or nutans, D. hamiltonii, binata, admirabilis, kaieteurensis, small D. capensis "Bob Ziemer's super wide leaf", small U. alpina x endressii, juvenile cephalotus. In the...
I might as well ask. I am considering ordering in some utric and/or genlisea seeds from over the pond. I know that the chances of successful germination are fairly slim when ordered this way but am tempted to try. Specifically, if/when availible, I am considering:
- D. intermedia "Mt. Roraima" (seedlings)
- D. spatulata 'Tamlin' (seedlings)
- H. minor
- H. pulchella (Churi tepui)
- S. flava var. rugelii
- U. alpina x endressii
- U. blanchetii
- U. livida
- U. pubescens
- U. tridentata...
